Amenities, Events, and Special Clubs.

The Villa Maria Winery has an Auckland cafe that is open 7 days where delicious foods and wines are served. The terrace of the cafe overlooks the Ihumatao Vineyard and is a great place to share a platter or have lunch with a friend or companion.

The vines and trees at the site create superb parkland around the winery and also bring out an ambient and tranquil setting that is well suited for various types of functions and events. Private functions, meetings, conferences, and even Christmas functions can be held at this venue and the staff is experienced when it comes to delivering exceptional and professional events at any level.

The Villa Maria also welcomes concert attendees to their winery and are committed to ensuring that everyone remains in a fun and safe environment.

Vineyard Cafe Menu Details.

The Cafe is open 9:00am to 4:00pm and lunch service is 11:30 to 3pm.  You can enjoy a super platter to share or the beef eye fillet to be very selfish with. The duck, chicken breast, salmon, lamb and fish of the day are just awesome.
